The Aadhaar is a 12-digit number which is issued to every resident of India. This number is unique and is based on the demographic and biometric data of the individual. The data is collected, stored, processed, and governed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). The Aadhaar helps in quick and safe validation of the identity of the individuals. The Aadhaar online portal makes service delivery more effective and economical.

Aadhaar Card: Change in the Demographic Data:

- Errors made during enrolment process.
- Change in the local language of the resident. In this case, all the details printed on the card will be changed to the new language.

Aadhaar Card: Change in the Biometric Data:
- If a child is less than 5 years of age at the time of initial enrolment, he/she must be re-enrolled upon attaining the age of 5. At this time, all the biometric data is collected and treated as fresh application while retaining the same 12-digit number. The resident must provide all biometric data again upon reaching 15 years of age.
- Residents are advised to update their biometric data once every 10 years.
- Events such as diseases or accidents can lead to biometric exceptions.
- The UIDAI might validate the biometric quality captured at the time of enrolment/updating to determine the threshold. A resident whose biometric details fall below the threshold will be notified by the UIDAI to update them as soon as possible.
For every change that is made, a supporting document is required for validation and approval.
